Sneezing is often accompanied by issues like lack of concentration, fatigue, runny nose, nasal irritation, and red eyes. Sneezing is not usually a serious problem but if it occurs persistently, it can be frustrating. There are many simple and easy home remedies for relief from sneezing.

Here are the top 10 home remedies for sneezing.

1. Peppermint Oil

If your sneezing is due to a stuffy nose, peppermint oil’s antibacterial properties can help.

  1. Boil some water and add five drops of peppermint oil.
  2. Cover you head with a towel and breathe in the steam coming from the boiling pot. Inhaling the steam will clear your nasal passages.

You can also inhale steam from boiling water mixed with a few drops of eucalyptus oil to get relief from sneezing induced by nasal irritation and colds.

2. Fennel Tea

Fennel has natural antibiotic and anti-viral properties that can fight off any upper respiratory infection, including sneezing.

  1. Boil a cup of water, add two teaspoons of crushed fennel seeds and cover the pot. Soak the seeds for 10 to 15 minutes and then strain the liquid.
  2. Drink two cups of this tea daily to reduce the frequency of sneezing.

When preparing fennel tea, never boil the water after adding the seeds to it. This will destroy the natural oils in the fennel.

3. Black Pepper

Something as simple as pepper can be the solution to sneezing and a runny nose.

  • Mix one-half tablespoon of pepper powder with lukewarm water. Drink it two to three times each day.
  • Gargling with warm water mixed with pepper also helps get rid of cold viruses and germs.
  • You can also eat soups and salads mixed with black pepper.

4. Chamomile Tea

A hot cup of chamomile tea is considered as one of the best home remedies for sneezing caused by allergies. It has excellent antihistamine properties that can provide instant relief.

  1. Add one teaspoon of dried chamomile flowers to one cup of boiling water, continue boiling the tea for a few minutes. Add some honey to improve the flavor.
  2. Drink the tea two times each day to stop your sneezing.

You can also use Echinacea and nettle tea and drink it two times daily.

5. Ginger

Ginger is one of the oldest and effective home remedies for the treatment of different viral and nasal problems including sneezing.

  • Consume 1 to 2 teaspoons of ginger extract twice a day until the sneezing stops.
  • Another option is to cut a small piece of ginger root into thin slices, put them in a cup of water and boil it for some time. Add a little honey for taste and drink the tea before going to bed. This will prevent sneezing at night.

6. Garlic

Garlic can easily fight off an upper respiratory infection due to its natural antibiotic and antiviral properties. It can be used internally or externally to get relief from excessive sneezing caused by a common cold infection.

  • Crush four to five garlic cloves to make a fine paste and then inhale its strong fragrance. This will help clear the nasal passages that cause sneezing and help you to breathe with ease.
  • It’s also helpful to include garlic in your diet. You can add it to your soups, salads and many other dishes.
